. Popular Ebook The Kindness of Strangers Although I haven't finished every one of these essays, I've read the vast majority of them. I give the collection four stars on the whole, because a few of the tales are mediocre at best and a few are truly beautiful and outstanding. I like the fact that some are written by brand-new authors while others are by "famous" ones (and, as you might guess, some by the budding authors are better than those by the seasoned!) There is a fairly good variety of locales covered, though it's a bit light on the European side of things--a bit more on Asian and Middle Eastern travels. (Perhaps this is due to the fact that it seems more astonishing/interesting to find "kindness" from strangers when there is more of a language barrier or one is in an impoverished or politically unstable country.) It's a beautiful concept, even if the completed project falls short of perfection, and the Dalai Lama's foreward is exquisite. Here's to following the "religion of kindness!" ------------------------------------------------------------Found this at the Barnes and Noble in Maui (we went in for the amazing collection of Hawaiian books, but I couldn't resist the entire travel section!) and I started it on the plane -- so far, I'm really enjoying it though some stories are better than others. Still, I love the idea and it's definitely heartwarming and inspiring.
